Again, Missing Language phrase(buddypress) by theme WordPress


Again, a theme issue(I guess).
In my home page, there is a buddypress activity stream, which is a shortcode by the theme author, but the author has so much bugs in the missing language.

Please have a look at the activities stream here:
[[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

<strong>To see this issue, you will need to register an account but noworries this is a development site, all accounts will be deleted later.</strong>

<strong>Try CLICK on it</strong>
You see the word [<strong>Favorite</strong>] and [<strong>Mark as Favorite</strong>], it displays in original English, and if click on it as action of mark as favorite, it turn to zh_TW(Traditional Chinese) mode..., and if click it again, it return [<strong>收藏</strong>]("Favorite" in Chinese mode). See screenshot below:
[[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

I have test both buddypress language file and the theme language file, all you see changes in the screenshots are by the buddypress language file, the language file from the theme doesn't affect it(both of them list those 2 phrases)

The red delete(刪除) link follow after the [Favorite] works perfect, I guess it is because the theme author doesn't mention it in the theme(fortunately).

Not sure if your explorer displays Traditional Chinese.

So this may the issue file from the theme, local in wp-content/themes/theme-name/buddypress/activity/entry.php

Also the issue po files,
Buddypress po file:[[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]
Theme Language po file:[[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

<strong>More information</strong>

The buddypress activities stream displays in the page is by a shortcode [gears_bp_activity_stream show="" max="8"] from a plugin named gear(developed by same author with the theme), and I have [[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]] download link. Just see if this is helpful.
(buddypress has no any official shortcodes)
